Naughty Hot Chocolate

I often post about our family on Facebook under the moniker Our Family Circus, an obvious homage to one of my favorite childhood comic series.   The posts have grown in popularity, so I’ve decided to go back and collect some of the older ones and publish them here on this blog.  Our boys have come up with the name Halfway Memes, which I think is a perfect title for our family stories.

Without further adieu, I present to you another in the Halfway Memes series, When the World Gives You Coal for Christmas, make Hot Chocolate!

#2Elfie, our Elf on the Shelf, brought our four year-old coal, this morning, a note, which read: “Santa wanted me to show you coal … I was afraid to ask why.”

My 8-year-old read the letter aloud with great concern.

Our four year-old turned to Mommy and said, “Hey, now Daddy can toss this in his fire.” (He meant to say our wood burning stove).

“Wow,” I said to my wife.  “We’re either going to have a lifetime of worry — or this kid has a future as a motivational speaker.”

James Henry is also the author of Corporation YOU: A Business Plan for the Soul, and two children’s books: The Second Prince and Klaus: The Gift-giver to ALL He’s also a husband to a very patient and loving wife and dad to amazing and creative boys.
